About Moshe Tzur

Moshe Tzur holds a B. Arch and an M. Sc. in Architecture and Town Planning from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology. In forty years of practice in Architecture, Urban Design and Town Planning he has undertaken projects in more than thirty countries. His expertise is in the design of large urban projects and building complexes including office buildings, high-density dwellings, and integrated commercial, work, and living environments. His distinguished practice has been the recipient of local and international awards for design excellence, and in 2013 he was nominated as the first Fellow of the Israel Association of United Architects (FIAUA).

Moshe Tzur Architects and Town Planners, the interdisciplinary practice he has developed in partnership with Orna Tzur, has achieved a unique research-oriented approach to the design of tall urban structures. This ecological approach to vertical urbanism seeks to integrate tall building complexes within the context of existing urban structure. His ability to integrate landscape urbanism within his tall building environments, particularly within the historic urban fabric of Tel Aviv, has made him the predominant designer of large-scale architectural urbanism now practicing in Israel.
